KULF (1090 kHz) is an AM daytimer radio station based in Bellville, Texas broadcasting a Spanish music format known as "Radio Luz".[1] Licensed to Bellville, Texas, USA, in the Victoria, Texas area. The station is currently owned by Jerome Friemel, through licensee JLF Communications, LLC.[2]

The station operates on a Class D daytime license on 1090 kHz. Because KULF shares the same frequency as clear-channel station station KAAY in Little Rock, Arkansas, it broadcasts only during the daytime hours. KULF currently holds a construction permit to move their broadcasts to Katy, Texas.

As KNUZ, the station simulcasted KULF (FM) 94.1 out of Brenham. The station's former KNUZ call letters were originally assigned to the Houston station on AM 1230 now known as KQUE, and are now used for 106.1 at San Saba, Texas.

In December 2009, the station was sold by Roy E. Henderson to JHT Ventures, Inc., 100% controlled by Janice Hollan. JHT sold KULF to Jerome Friemel's JLF Communications, LLC at a purchase price of $10,000; the transaction was consummated on January 29, 2013.
